Pull-quote from a 2002 datasheet for Softimage|3D 4.0:
||“Nothing was comparable to SOFTIMAGE|3D, so we stuck with it again—and I’m glad we did. Softimage offers everything we need, and the animators here know the tools so well that we can play with different combinations, so it’s rare to get into a jam.
In fact, we’ve gotten crazy clever with it!”

Here’s the actual datasheet. It’s kinda text-heavy, but as I remember it, the image quality of screenshots in PDFs was not so great back then.
The datasheet has one mention of XSI: SOFTIMAGE|3D also offers an easy upgrade path to the next-generation SOFTIMAGE|XSI™ nonlinear animation (NLA) system.
Could perhaps attach the actual pdf as well? 😉
Could YOU… (obviously)
Usually I don’t in case I violate some rule I don’t know about, but I don’t see the harm here.
The word “datasheet” is now linked to the pdf.
It looks so elgant. Softimage now reminds me of this statement “It’s a 3D program, period.”
